Crossed Feet

Occasionally, I will be joined at the corner bus stop 
by a young woman on her way to classes 
at one of the nearby hospitals. Unlike many other students,
she always looks tidy. And I envy her her ability to 
stand with her feet crossed at the ankles
without tipping over.
How does she do that without tipping over?
On her, the posture looks cute and feminine,
while I just look like the cow that tripped
over her own feet on the way to 
setting off the great Chicago Fire.
